Solid aroma of bubblegum mixed with flowers and a pinch of light grain/wheat. Hazy apricot colored beer support a tall off-white head for a bit, but it eventually fades to a ring. The flavor is really mild. It's a mix of the bubblegum and some dough/yeast. There is a good amount of carbonation in this beer and it's a bit rough, not as smooth as most Hefeweizens. The carbonation seems to strip some of the flavor away, which is unfortunate. It smells really good, and the taste is not bad, it's just a bit weak.

Weißbierprobe 2008! Whos the best in greater München? Augustiner vs. Unertl vs. Schneiderweisse vs. Erdingers fresh on the market Ur-Weisse!!! Too close to call between two of the Weißbiers. Augustiner and Schneiderweisse were the strongest but offer the drinker two very different Weißbiers. Highly recommended of course are both. The new offering from Erdinger(since Jan/08) was good and much much better than than usual offering of less than worthy Weißbier! Unertl was a disappointment and I will have to test them again at a later date due to there reputation here in Bayern. It happens...maybe I got a bad one....
Erdinger Weißbier is run-of the-mill. They have finally put out a good offering. It's still a bit to mild with fruit and bubblegum in the aroma. Nice wheat malt aromas are present. The aroma is also slightly spicy. It's spicy on the tongue and phenolic in taste. Not much malt flavor going on here though. The bitterness is slightly astringent. Did they put it in the Euroflasche that Augustiner uses for a reason? Marketing marketing marketing....The Bier is not bad damn they could have done better!
